Vista should be using the wireless drivers provided by Boot Camp. Are you
getting a wireless signal or just not able to connect? I can't tell from
your post which it is. If you have no wireless at all on the Windows side,
reinstall the wireless drivers. Use the Apple Boot Camp drivers.
If your wireless is active but still can't connect, in Windows please do:
Start>Search>type: cmd [enter]
This will give you a command prompt. At the command prompt, type:
ipconfig /all [enter]
Post back with the IP address of the wireless adapter and the gateway.
If you get any error messages when you try to connect wirelessly, please
quote them exactly without paraphrasing. Tell us what make/model router you
are using and the level of encryption.
